Tutor: Danielle Cooke

After years of buying expensive scented candles Danielle attended a candle making workshop and so began the journey into candle making as a hobby. This was followed by attending and selling hand poured candles at local markets and the next step was buying a candle business. Danielle is the owner of Sniff Soy Candles making beautifully fragranced, unique soy candles, diffusers and bath products as well as selling a variety of DIY candle making kits on Ebay and Esty. Running classes seemed like a natural progression to inspire others to make their own natural, scented candles as either a hobby, to make as gifts, or just as a creative outlet and a fun thing to do.
